FORT MYERS, Fla. -- We're working to find out why police surrounded a car outside of Lee Memorial Hospital overnight.

Video from the Fox 4 Breaking News Tracker from early Thursday morning shows that police put tape up around a beige sedan parked outside the trauma center.

Police are no longer there and the car, a Mitsubishi Mirage, was towed away.

Once we learn more about the investigation, we'll be sure to bring that to you.
